Franklin, MO (December 5, 2021) – At approximately 4 p.m., on December 3, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto accident in Franklin County.
Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser was traveling on Route KK near Kopp Lane when the driver overcorrected. As a result, the vehicle collided with the front left corner of a 2002 Ford F-150.
The driver of the Ford, a 16-year-old female from the New Haven area, sustained injuries in the crash. She was transported by ambulance to Mercy Washington where she underwent emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the teen who was injured in this accident. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of people being involved in fatal collisions. Not only are people losing their lives at an unpleasant rate, but tens of thousands more are left with injuries that demand emergency medical care.
People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, many people harmed in crashes are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after. When victims are injured in accidents resulting from the negligence of other motorists, it is important that they seek legal guidance as soon as possible.
Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward. A responsive and effective car accident attorney in Franklin can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
